For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. Romans 8:14-17

Help bring a baby home from Ethiopia!

One of the great things about blogging is the community it creates of people you'd never otherwise get chance to meet. I "met" Joely through her adoption blog. She and her husband are in the process of adopting from Ethiopia. They're stepping up their fundraising efforts as there's some major money due soon in the process. You can help by checking out her blog... Expecting from Ethiopia

Crazy Week!

So glad to have last week behind me! It started off w/ a bang w/ all the snow on Sunday. The boys were off school Monday and enjoyed playing in the snow both days. My hubby went out of town from Monday to hats off to single moms and those who have their husbands gone for extended periods...I was exhausted when he finally made it home. Not helping of course was having sick kiddos...It's nice to have us all home together again. The boys are on the mend too.

1st blog post ever!

Ever since I discovered the world of "mommy blogs" a few years ago, I've thought about starting my own. I'm not really sure how it will go.... I'm a pretty private person. I feel like 2011 is going to be a big year for me and my family. God has exciting things in store for us. I wanted to have somewhere to document our journey.
